Dr. Travis Bennett was born and raised in small town outside of Phoenix, Arizona and is the oldest of four siblings.

Graduating in 2000 with Honors from Arizona State University with a Bachelors Degree in Business, Dr. Bennett went on to attend Nova Southeastern University School of Dental Medicine and graduated in 2005. In dental school he excelled both academically and clinically and graduated at the top of his class.
Dr Bennett moved to the Keys and took over his current dental practice in Key Largo in 2006. Dr. Bennett takes pride in having one of the most technologically advanced dental practices in the nation and definitely enjoys his profession. He is an active member of the FDA, ADA, ACDA, and is a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. In addition, he is an alumnus of the Misch International Implant Institute in both Implantology and Prosthetics and is an Implant Fellow.

In addition, he is an active supporter of the community and has served on the Board of Directors for the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce and Upper Keys Artificial Reef Foundation.
One of the things that Dr. Bennett enjoys most is being part of a small close knit community that takes care of their own. Daily conversations with patients about the latest diving or fishing report is always a highlight of his day.
Dr. Sandy M. Brito, DMD
We are excited to announce that Dr. Sandy M. Brito, DMD will be joining our dental practice as we expand to open an additional office in Tavernier, Florida.
Sometimes life comes full circle and there is no exception here. Sandy moved to Key Largo and attended Coral Shores High School from her freshman year until she graduated one year early in 2003. It was there she met Jeff, her husband-to-be.
During her senior year at Coral Shores, she interned at Everyone Loves A Gentle Dentist. While interning, she decided on a career in dentistry. After graduation, she attended Florida International University to study Health Sciences Administration. Staying true to her hasty pattern of finishing early, she advanced through her undergraduate program in three short years, graduating Cum Laude.
She was accepted into Nova Southeastern University School Of Dentistry in 2007, which is where Dr. Bennett also attended. After graduating in 2011, she began practicing general dentistry in Miami, Florida.
Recently, we learned Dr. Brito was looking forward to returning the Florida Keys and the rest is history! She is extremely excited to re-join our dental family at our new Tavernier office and help us grow our practice.
One of Dr. Brito's greatest qualities is her ability to interact and socialize with people. Most of her free time is spent chasing her two children around the house as well as spending quality time with family and friends. She enjoys making digital scrapbooks, boating, vacationing and experiencing different types of cuisine and restaurants. She has a "love/hate relationship with running" as she has completed one full marathon and four half marathons. Her goal is to attempt one half marathon each year.
Fluent in both English and Spanish, she admits to having a "genuine love for dentistry and interaction with patients." She consistently strives for quality care with a positive patient experience. She stays current with the ever changing dental climate by immersing herself in numerous continuing education courses as well as being actively involved with the ADA, FDA, and SFDDA.
